Who We Serve

At Outdoor Adventures by Boojum, our unwavering commitment is to serve a diverse range of participants, from kindergarten to adult, who seek transformative outdoor experiences. We believe that the benefits of these experiences should be accessible to all, regardless of economic constraints. We proudly serve both fee-paying individuals and grant-supported members of community groups who otherwise have limited opportunities to explore the great outdoors. We are sustained by the generous support of grants, donations, and our fee-for-service model, allowing us to continue making a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.
